Annual Tops

I've been busy whirring away on my machine over the last week.

I received so many lovely comments from you about the tops that I designed and a few of you wondered if I might be offering them up for sale to you lovelies aswell. 

Well, I'm really thrilled to let you know that I have the first four Annual Tops hot of the machine, ready and waiting for a new home.

Each top is a one of a kind, all handmade by me, Bobo Bun, with great attention to detail, in a selection of vintage fabrics. 

Annual Tops are inspired by the pretty and easy to wear tops I wore in my 1970's childhood.


 I even managed to get a beautiful model for the day so you really get a feel for how they look. 

First up isTammy.

 This is a stunning 1960's blue and lilac floral cotton print. One of my absolute favourites to be honest.
The facing is a blue polkadot print with stripy binding. 
The slash back is fastened with a lace trim bow.

Next we have Mandy. 
 This is a made from a beautiful light cotton print from the 1950's covered in flowers and bows.
I've added a pink floral facing with pink binding and fastened the back with a tiny white flower button.

Then we have June.  sold thankyou
 June is a 1960's cotton floral, edged with a blue trim. Polkas dot blue facings with a light green binding.

Last of all we have Bunty. Sold thankyou
This is a very pretty floral cotton from the 1980's. Pink polka dot facings and green lace trom to the neckline finish Bunty off a treat.

I've several of these tops which I wear all the time. 
On hot days they're perfect with shorts, skirts or cropped jean. I just love how they instantly cheer me with the pretty prints.

 On colder days they look great over a t-shirt and when it's really cold add a cardi too.

All are made from vintage fabrics with vintage and recycled trimmings too.

 They are cut generously to fit a size 12/14.
Length from shoulder to hem is 26" (66 cm).

 As these are the first Annual Tops I've made for you, I've made them all in a mid range sizing to start with.

I am planning in the future to offer other sizes, fabric choices and individual commissions.

Now for the nitty gritty.
 Each Annual Top is £40 plus £2 post and packing in the UK. 
If you are outside the UK please email me at bobobunmakes@yahoo.co.uk for postage costs.

If you wish to buy an Annual Top then please email me with the name of the top you're interested in. 
I'll then send you an invoice via paypal. If you don't have paypal, don't worry as I can also take cheques.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
